    CCW holster for USP Compact

    Greetings all:

    I have used for a while now a Don Hume II OWB snap on, it's worked OK but it seems a tad bulky, I have looked at Bianchi and Milt Sparks rigs for the USP C but would like some feedback on others experiences?

    I use the McDaniel II from Andrews Leather for my UPS45C and a couple Para 1911s.

    The belt loop is behind the gun which pulls it in closer to the body, making it less likely to print. The steel mouth will NOT collapse when the gun is drawn and the angle of the belt loop is adjustible to fit the user. The belt loops come in three sizes (1.75, 1.5, 1.25") and you get two of the three with it. You can get it open top, with a body shield or with a thumb break.

    It's the only IWB I use.

    This is the best IWB holster I have found... ever! :)

    Okay, I have a bigger problem (literally) than you and I solved it this way: MY USP (standard size, 12 rd capacity) nestles in a Galco "Concealable" OWB and is very comfortable. I wore an XXL "Hawaiian" style shirt to my IDPA match and then out with the wife on errands yesterday. It disappeared here in South Florida. Nobody noticed. Not even my wife (who's clued into me "printing" at times) said anything. I also recommend getting the "Concealable" belt to go with it and get it +2" if you want to go IWB with a USP. Belt should be the 1.5" size, which tapers in the front to 1.25, IIRC. Topping things off, I got a Galco quick release ammo carrier in Havana Brown to make it an ensemble rig. BEAUTIFUL! But not cheap.

    IWB you can't do any better than a SAM ANDREWS "McDaniel II"

    Usp C

    Thank you both, I looked at both the Galco and Andrews and will have to decide, the Andrews seems to be a better fit what I am looking at but I appreciate your input

    The belt loop is behind the gun which pulls it in closer to the body, making it less likely to print. The steel mouth will NOT collapse when the gun is drawn and the angle of the belt loop is adjustable to fit the user. The belt loops come in three sizes (1.75, 1.5, 1.25") and you get two of the three with it. You can get it open top, with a body shield or with a thumb break.

    I took your advice and ordered it, I think I may have to get the 1 3/4 inch loop because it doesn't seem to fit quite right on a Don Hume 1 1/2 inch belt other than that it seems fine

    P.S. I use Del Fatti rigs (IWB & OWB) for my USPc, and they are great.

    I did get it and I think I either need to lose weight :) or use the 1 3/4 inch loop, it isn't what I expected, I am so comfortable with my DH Copy II that it may take some time to get used to the Andrews

    Well, I guess everyone has to decided for themselves. I'll just say I'm a very satisfied customer.

    The bad news is that it takes a LONG time from order to delivery, since Matt has a huge backlog.

    I just started the conversation with Matt to build what I would want. What model of OWB for your USP C do you have?

    Mine is the LP-QS. You can see a picture here: http://www.delfatti.com/New%20photo%...lp-qs-uspc.jpg I added a thumb break to mine.

    P.S. If you scroll down the the Members' Photo Gallery section and look under SSKC, you'll see some not-so-great pix of my Del Fatti leather.
